Each month, our legal team takes a look at celebrity DWIs. The reason we do this is that it doesn’t matter how famous or rich you are - if you’ve been charged with a DWI and you fail to work with an experienced legal team, you will face the consequences. 

Ultimate Fighting Championship Fighter Desmond Green Arrested For DWI

According to police, UFC fighter Desmond Green has been arrested for more than 20 charges, including DWI manslaughter. 

His arrest warrant was issued nearly a year after the deadly accident which claimed the lives of two women. Investigators have stated that Green was driving a Dodge Durango when he allegedly moved into the path of an oncoming semi truck. The resulting collision caused a chain reaction accident involving another three vehicles.

 A 67-year-old woman and a 76-year-old woman did not survive the impact. Several others were seriously injured. 

When police arrived on the scene, they allege that Green appeared intoxicated. They also stated that witnesses saw him throw a metal object over the guardrail after the crash. Officers then recovered a marijuana grinder from the direction the witness indicated the object was thrown. During a search of Green’s vehicle, officers allege they found a small bag of cocaine. 

A blood test was performed on the scene and the results indicated that Green’s blood alcohol limit was .14, above the legal limit and there was THC in his system. 

Green was also driving on a suspended license

If found guilty, Green could serve a lengthy prison sentence, seriously disrupting his career. 

Michael Madsen Charged With DWI 

Actor Michael Madsen, who is best known for his roles in movies like “Hateful Eight” and “Kill Bill” has been officially charged following an arrest in March 2019. 

Per the court records, Madsen was involved in an accident when he crashed his SUV into a pole in Malibu, CA. According to his arrest report, Madsen failed a breath test. 

This is his second DWI, the first occurring in 2012. 

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and will appear back in court in July. 

Teairri Mari Charged For A DWI In New York 

The star of “Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood” was arrested after police officers spotted her driving on only three wheels, with sparks and smoke coming out from under her car. 

Per her arrest report, the star blew a .304 in a breath test which is almost three times the legal limit. In addition to this, she was driving on a suspended license and without an interlock ignition device which she had been ordered to install due to a previous DWI. 

Call A DWI Attorney Immediately After A DWI Arrest 

Like these celebrities, anyone with a DWI arrest could face serious consequences including jail time, heavy fines, the loss of a license, and the required use of an interlock ignition device. But with the help of an experienced attorney, the charges could be thrown out or the penalties reduced.
